New youth worker for Kin­sale café

Irish Examiner - County - - News -

Kin­sale Youth Com­mu­nity Café has ap­pointed a youth worker. Jackie O’Hal­lo­ran’s new role is to cre­ate ac­tiv­i­ties and a safe en­vi­ron­ment where the young peo­ple of Kin­sale can so­cialise and en­hance their per­sonal devel­op­ment and well-be­ing. Jackie, from Bal­ly­gar­van, is a grad­u­ate of UCC’s Youth and Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment Pro­gramme. She has more than 10 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in co­or­di­nat­ing youth groups and meet­ing in­di­vid­ual needs.

She will be based in the com­mu­nity-run café for 20 hours a week, so the public is in­vited to “pop in to say hello” and bring along their teens to hang out. The café, run by a vol­un­tary com­mit­tee, re­opens to­mor­row after the sum­mer break. Open­ing times are Wed­nes­days, 2pm-8pm, and Fri­days, 4pm-8pm, for 1st and 2nd year stu­dents, and Satur­days, 2pm-6pm, for 3rd years on­wards. Jackie can be con­tacted di­rectly on 087-7903319, or con­tact Gearóid on 086-2564069.
